Scientist Claims Brain Cells "Warp" During Serious Car Accident

Steve Wagner

Is your brain a beach ball, or Jello? A biomedical engineer at Columbia University suggests our brains are much more like Jello than common myths may tell us.

Did we get your attention yet?

That’s right; Jello. Barclay Morrison, Columbia University scientist says that we often think our brains are like beach balls, bouncing around inside our skull. When it comes to collisions or concussive incidents, our brains are not impacted by a smashing into the interiors of our skulls. Rather, he suggests our brains tissue can actually be altered, as it is tends to warp within its container as a cohesive unit (much like Jello).

We Stress The Importance of Brain Protection

There is no cure for a Traumatic Brain Injury. Read that one more time: no cure for a TBI. So once it happens, your brain can literally be altered from its original form. This is why engineers like Morrison are constantly working to develop brain protective technologies for TBI prevention.

If you are injured in a car accident, a sports accident, or any incident where you hit your head or suffer from whiplash, we cannot stress to you enough the importance of immediately seeing a physician. Document your injuries, even if they aren’t obvious at first.

Without this early documentation, it can be nearly impossible to get compensation for an injury that can, over time, become life-altering and severely damaging.
